We arrived in Acapulco on Saturday around 6pm, checked in at a very nice hotel in front of the beach, and went directly to the beach and pool. I got a massage on a massage table on the beach, it was a great experience, it was awesome!
We ended the day eating a seafood buffet infront of the sea and enjoyed the sound of the Mariachis playing.
Next day was really nice, we went to the beach during the morning, I was scared of getting a sun burn, I was specially careful about that, I took a strong sunscreen protector, but noon I thought it was enough sun for me, obviously I was not under the sun very much, I was mostly in the water, I’m not a person that like to take long sun baths…and as my skin is very fair I get burn easily.
That afternoon my friend decide to stay at the hotel for more sun…but that was enough to me, so I took a cab and went to downtown, to the Zocalo,I went to a traditional Mexican restaurant, and then too a tour around Acapulco, is was very fun, I toured a lot and got to now very exciting places, even an old very traditional long time ago hotel Casablanca that has an breathtaking view over all the city…I will post some pictures.
We traveled back to Mexico city at 6am and arrived at the airport at around 11, we checked in our bags and the personal Manager of a very famous Latin American singer who became our friend in Mexico took us to VIP waiting room, that was my first time in the VIP room, and was fantastic! They had computers, free juices, pastries, coffee, giant flat screen TV’s, tables, sofas, etc…we were there waiting to check in security.
It happens that the singer Ricardo Arjona had to arrive almost the same time we had to departure, (and that was a huge coincidence) was not related that we became friends with his personal assistant. That moment was so exciting because we had the remote chance to get to know Ricardo Arjona in person…(we both are big fans of him)
So we checked into security and found out in what gate he would arrive, then the shuttle driver approved us and let us know that he was going to the airplane to pick them up and take them to the gate, so we hopped on the shuttle and went to wait for Ricardo Arjona as he entered in the bus (he was among the first ones) so we went and sat next to him, that was an amazing experience, he was huge, about 2 meters tall, was wearing sun glasses and a black cap, he was more handsome than I thought, he was very friendly (as opposite than I heard) …my friend Letti even offer to produce a show for him in Toronto…who knows?, maybe some day soon I will hop on another plane to see him performing life in Toronto, wouldn’t that be something?
I know Letti for about 13 years now, she was always a big fan of Arjona, she always wanted to ask him some questions about his song and his writings, It took 13 years, but she finally got to talk to him and she accomplished her dream…She always get what she wants, because she pursues it very hard and for a very long period of time…and that was a lesson for me…if you want something get it, period!
I hope this was not the last time we were in the right place at the right time…life is full of coincidences, like the time I met and talked to Bill Gates in a coffee shop in downtown Seattle by coincidence,…and so is my life full of great coincidences, amazing people and reasonable reachable dreams.
